  1. Hi guys, I'm new to film-making and just purchased an SRII and wanted to know what size (in diameter) film core would I need for the take up side of the magazine when shooting 400' rolls. I just purchased a 3" diameter film core, would that be okay? Thanks, Walter
  2. Gregg, Yes, Shurco Tools is doing the artwork. They are not doing the TV guides, just 1.78 and 1.85 guides, and it's being installed by Visual Products. Paul sent me a PDF with all the different formats available (e.g., 2.35, HDTV, 1.66, etc.). I am mostly doing 1.78 for music videos that will be uploaded online, and with future intentions to use 1.85 for independent films. I would upload the PDF if I knew how.
  3. I never thought of that. Unfortunately I already made the purchase. Thanks for the advice though.
  4. Thanks Dom, I just spoke to Paul at VisualProducts and they are having one made for me with 1.66, 1.78, and 1.85 viewing guides. Appreciate it.
  5. Hi, I purchased an SR2 and wanted to frame for 1.78 viewing. Can someone please explain to me what a ground glass is and where it is located on the camera? Thanks, Walter
  6. Hi Mitch, I believe I have found a solution for you, although I have not purchased any of these products. http://www.cavision.com/pictures/ArriSRII/Arri16SR&413-4.htm If you look at the image of the Arri SR2, you'll see right below it, links to different accessories that are being used. If I am not mistaken, these should be compatible with SR1/2. If you wish to see pricing for these items, click on the tab at the bottom of the screen that says online order. Hope this helps, Walter
  7. Hello, I purchased an Arri SR2 Super 16 and wanted to frame for 1.78 viewing. Someone told me that I would need a viewing screen (ground glass) in order to do this, but I am unsure of what this is exactly. Can anyone tell where this ground glass goes on the camera; do I need to have it professionally installed, and do they still sell them? Also, I was also wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a video monitor that records (for playback purposes only) that can connect to my video tap (XC999). Thank you, Walter P.S. This is my first post. Forgive me if I am in the wrong section.
